Each year we hold some key events. In the spring we have a Book and Author Event, the Equal Pay Day, and our Annual Branch Meeting. Later in the year we hold a Fall Luncheon and a Holiday Un-Party.
Annual Meeting 2022
Annual Meeting details forthcoming soon!
Each year we hold a Fall Luncheon to fundraise for the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders (NCCWSL) grant. The grant supports the participation of a student(s) to attend the annual conference at the University of Maryland. The luncheon is a time for us to socialize, celebrate, and hear from a local woman leader.
This party is for everyone who is too busy to sell tickets, bake cookies, or dress up for another party, but still has the holiday spirit for sharing. You can have a relaxing evening at home and donate to the AAUW/Fort Lewis College Scholarship fund.
Equal Pay Day
AAUW annually declares an Equal Pay Day to draw attention to the continuing gender-based wage gap. Local merchants give a 20% discount to women and girls on goods and services on the declared Equal Pay Day. The 20% figure is based on the fact that women’s wages in general lag behind those of men at 20 cents per dollar.
Book and Author Event
The Annual Book & Author Event is a wonderful social, spring gathering set aside for members and guests to celebrate local authors. We meet, greet, and eat; we listen and learn; we honor our mission by raising funds to support the education of women and girls. It is currently a fundraising occasion for the Sandy Brown Scholarship.
